Wire Phobe is a charming film which sits very solidly in the Rom-Com Genre.
The casting choices were hilarious, with our bully, a very large adult man cast as a school boy with a fear of wire, and the rest of the cast consisting of teenagers. It contrasted beautifully and left us giggling away for the entirety of the film. The Edge of Your Seats made a great show of stereotypical bullying, with some fantastic toilet dunking, wedgies and booby trapping.
Of course, the bully falls in love with the sweetest girl in the school, who loves making things out of wire. In order to have the girl, he must get over his fear of wire and his bullying ways. The wire theme was a little bit forced, but really, nobody much cared. It was jammed in our faces with such good-natured humour that we really couldn't mind.
At one point in the film, our fed up victims rig a hallway with wire across it like laser beams in a James Bond movie, and the Bully is suddnely swapped over for a smaller, more lithesome body while he navigates the trap in true master thief style, reappearing as himself at the end. The audience loved it, I loved it, and I'm sure the judges will love it.
It gets very comical at the end, when the girl he has been trying to court offers him an elaborate wire heart as a gesture of her affection. Now I really don't know if this was intentional, but this particular wire heart crossed over in the middle and curled at the ends, forming a very penile shape inside it. The whole audience burst into laughter, and left everyone giggling through the credits.
This is a great film, the cinematography, while not overly slick and fancy, was very well done, and the pace was good. This is one of few films that I didn't think was too long, and it was thoroughly enjoyable.
